A fair percentage of people go on some sort of vacation or another during the summer holidays. Common choices are Disneyland, New York, San Francisco and Orlando. Only a small percentage of Americans have passports and are able to take holiday outside of the USA. I happen to be among that percentage. I travel to England twice a year to visit my fiancee. I fly out once for Christmas and once for the summer; summer holidays lasting generally 90 days. In short, when I am not enjoying the educational experience at the College of Eastern Utah, I'm in Britain. This summer was no exception.

At first I was shocked and even offended by the blatantly liberal and feminist way I perceived the class was being taught. My first introduction to the subject had been rather ordinary and at times almost bookish, which had suited me well, and the gall of this new professor was shocking and to be frank, unwelcome.
